Show synopsis Celebrating the 25th anniversary of this iconic and elegant desk calendar, the rose- and lavender-hued slipcase of this 2013 celebration edition features a gorgeously detailed classic Provencal toile pattern from Olivades called "Les Quatre Saisons"--the four seasons. Vintage typography and evocative photographs enhance the captivating design within the calendar, with each of the week-at-a-glance spreads offering an intimate vignette of the French countryside, including gardens, private homes, villages, and inspiring landscapes. This year's edition features a visit to a luminous stone farmhouse surrounded by lavender fields near Saint-Remy-de-Provence; a sunlit drive through the hidden coves and harbors of the Cotes d'Armor, Brittany's rocky northern coast; a snowy winter's day in Paris; and an afternoon discovering the Potager du Roi, Louis XIV's extraordinary vegetable garden at the Palace of Versailles. Also included are lush four-color endpapers, generous space for jotting daily notes, a stitched-in ribbon to mark each week, and decorative address pages.
